OK, I noticed a log in my history folders in IE that I was not familiar with. I deleted it last night but it was back today - and I had not surfed the net at all yet.
Had no idea what this was, but the last time I had a strange IP show up like this in my IE history it turned out to be a VBS/Psyme trojan. Difficult to get rid of for someone of limited comp. tech. skills like myself.
The first thing I did was check what programs my McAfee was allowing net access to. That's where I noticed that it had blocked a program I didn't recognize. "mljgf.exe" After finding this I banned the 18.104.22.168 address and went searching on mljgf.
Google gives me lots of info on .dll files with this name that are spyware, but no exe's. My McAfee did not find anything and neither did my Adaware. I searched my comp for files modified or created on or around the same time as this mljgf.exe (yesterday 3-17-07 @ 6:27 pm). There were two other files with the exact same date and time.
The HwLocal seems to be part of McAfee, but I'm finding nothing on lzexalg. I'm just concerned about having spyware or something worse. Knowing that something's there and not knowing how to get rid of it is frustrating. Any ideas? Thanks.
